Chris Olson, CEO at The Media Trust:
“Enterprises should be concerned about the increasing frequency of website breaches attributed to compromised third-party code. Clearly, app sec, antivirus and other traditional website security solutions can’t keep pace with the thousands of malicious domains generated every month. The onus is on enterprise IT to continuously monitor all executing code – both first and third-party code – on websites and mobile apps to discover what and who is executing in the digital environment. All unauthorized or anomalous code should be immediately remediated, which means contacting the code owner and demanding compliance. Today’s dynamic internet environment requires a continuous security approach to detect real-time security and performance failures before they have detrimental effects on both the enterprise network and its website users.”
